Hiya! I'm just interested in comparing boarding costs.
I already know that my boarding is ridiculously cheap... And I mean ridiculously. I pay $1000 once a year and it includes:
-24/7 Pasture board in the summertime.
-Stall/Pasture board in the wintertime. (Outdoors unless it's bad weather.)
-Access to miles of trails/outdoor arena/round pen/etc.
-Free rides on BO's horses for trail rides.
-Yearly shot. (The name of the shot is slipping my mind for some reason...)
-One daily hay feed
-BO is ridiculously helpful and has already repaired my saddle (replaced nylon off-billets with leather that he bought out of his own pocket) for no charge and will be trimming my mares hooves for free. I offered to pay but he refused.
My BO doesn't really make money off his "horse business", which is why he has things so cheap. He loves horses and any money he brings in is from lessons and birthday parties/trail rides. We're also kind of in the boonies and horse owners are hard to come by in my province.
In my old province, board was usually around $350-$450 a month and didn't include as much as I'm getting here.
Just wondering what other people pay vs what you get back? I'm super curious.
